    I have an 05 Tacoma 4x4 and im looking to get 9in of lift on it. The only thing is i dont want to go the body lift road. I had one on a chevy of mine and didnt care for it much. any insight would be greatly appreciated

    You could always go with your fabtech lift or other company that does 6 inch lifts. And maybe do an inch body lift. I'm talking out loud now... but does anyone know if he could do a 2 inch spacer lift while he did the 6 inch lift. I think it is not recommended.... but.... it would get you to 9 inches overall.

    I think your best bet would be to contact fabtech or RCD directly and see what they recommend. I don't think anyone on here has done that much all suspension lift. Be prepared to regear.

    What size tire are you going to run? I wouldn't put anything too big one there. Remember that the tacoma is a pretty small light duty truck.

    I was planning on going with 35, or just going straight with 37's.

    you will definitely need to regear with 37s. like i said contact fabtech. some custom fab work may be needed.

    You could use a 6" lift and then stack 3" coilovers on it couldn't you?

    That high up aren't you going to mess with your center of gravity? Plus you will need oxygen just to drive that thing with the air being so thin up there! LOL:D
